Anarchy Reigns

DarkStation
25 January 2013
  • Conclusion: Even if you’re like me and don’t end up getting hooked on the online, Anarchy Reigns is a rock-solid action game with combo-based combat you can really chew on, rad boss encounters, and one of the more ludicrous stories to come along in games for some time.

Anarchy Reigns Review

Game Over Online
24 January 2013
  • Excerpt: I keep changing my mind on Anarchy Reigns . It’s one of those misleading games that isn’t what it looks like at first. When I picked it up, I was thinking it was a modern take on old-fashioned arcade beat-‘em-ups, along with a large amount of that idiosyncratic character design you get from Platinum...

Anarchy Reigns Review: Platinum Delivers Another Insane and Satisfying Beat ‘em Up

  • Excerpt: First impressions are important, but they can also be deceiving. I’m not going to lie — I was a little worried when the first thing that popped up when I loaded up Anarchy Reigns was a screen with a wall of text feeding me the game’s plot.

  • Excerpt: Anarchy Reigns very much deserves its name. This is one of the most insanely kinetic multiplayer brawlers since Power Stone . If you’re one of the hardcore that isn’t afraid to try new things and face daunting entry barriers in the process, this is the game for you.
  • Pros: Superbly fine-tuned mechanics, rad soundtrack, unique cast of characters
  • Cons: Huge initial difficulty barrier might chase away the casual, lackluster campaign

  • Excerpt: I’m all for over-the-top insanity in my action games. I can appreciate ridiculous amounts of flashy, highly stylized combat mixed with a dash of twisted craziness. If I take on a giant squid and a whole lot of nasty crap happens, I’m gonna giggle.

Anarchy Reigns

GameTrailers
11 January 2013
  • Excerpt: Coming out swinging with a budget pricetag and a wild cast of characters, Anarchy Reigns is a forceful beat’em up where distinctively-styled badasses turn their eyes toward brutal online competition.

Anarchy Reigns review (X360)

HonestGamers
10 January 2013
  • Excerpt: I think the reason we're all so hesitant to call Anarchy Reigns a sequel to MadWorld – which it is, by the way – is that despite featuring a nearly identical control scheme and most of the same cast of characters, the game has been stripped of nearly everything that made Platinum Games’ Wii...

Anarchy Reigns is the digital version of a big box of mismatched toys (review)

VentureBeat
10 January 2013
  • Conclusion: Anarchy Reigns lives and dies on the amount of craziness it’s able to throw at you. When things are going well, like in its over-the-top multiplayer modes, it’s reminiscent of every great action figure battle you ever had as a kid converted into digital form.
  • Pros: The gameplay is a little difficult to pin down. To put it simply, it’s a beat-em-up crossed with a fighter crossed with a shooter crossed with whatever you call Dynasty Warriors. In the campaign, you drop into a level with little to do but punch hundreds of dudes until you earn enough points to u...
  • Cons: While Anarchy Reigns’ attempt to mash together so many styles and genres is clever, none of it really works as well as it should. Having every character play relatively the same might be fine for a beat-em-up, in one-on-one combat it doesn’t leave enough room for much strategy beyond deciding whe...
